An uproar over the Norwegian royals

Princess Märtha Louise resigns from her official duties

Norway’s Princess Märtha Louise, who is engaged to a shaman, will not perform any official duties to the royal family until further notice.


Princess Märtha Louise will no longer perform her royal duties at the Norwegian court. This was announced by the royal family in an official statement.

The Norwegian royal family announced in Oslo on Tuesday that Princess Märtha Louise, 51, wants to use the move to help ensure that her private business activities are separated from her role in court. She therefore decided, in consultation with her father, King Harald V (85) and the closest family, not to take on any official duties for the time being. Her father decided that she would keep the title of Princess.

Organizations sponsoring the move is the sister of Crown Prince Haakon (49). Other representatives of the royal family should take their place. Martha Louise got engaged to Durek Verrett (47) in June, also known in the United States as the Durek shaman. The princess has been criticized several times in recent years for mixing business interests and her official title.
